Re: E-bike or E-motorcycle?

Lot's of good advice here. Markz and Amberwolf I think really hit it- you're really gonna want an eBike (aside from Daunt's comment) because you really *can't* get an eMotorbike for that price and it comes with a lot of other fees- like tires! Another detail touched on was safety; above ~35mph, you...

Re: Windows Gaming PC hardware, building, troubleshooting, & benchmarking

I am disappointed that tech article writers haven't written enough articles to make these points more clear with easy to look at chart, ideally there should be a performance-chart of an SSD that is 10,000 points higher than a HDD, but no one has bothered to make one. But... how else are they gonna ...

Re: Raised Bed Gardening - Cement Blocks > Greenhouse!

This is an awesome thread DrkAngel; that "Compost Tea" really interests me. Odd question- I'm about to close on a house that has a MASSIVE backyard that the prior owner had built into a huge garden. Would you be willing to offer some pointers to me? I've planted and dicked around in gardens for the ...

Re: Making a DIY half-face respirator when stores are sold out

What's the opinion on full SCBA style-masks with spinningmagnet's HEPA filter idea? Pretty aggressive and gas-masky, but it would avoid the problems of forming a good mouth seal and have an easy connect/disconnect system with established manufacturing and easy cleaning. From my fire experience they ...

Re: Windows Gaming PC hardware, building, troubleshooting, & benchmarking

Thank for those details! I wonder then why they keep that nickel plating on the lid at all instead of a copper one- the latter it seems, would let you get away with a smaller cooling circuit or something more efficient.

Re: First build

I gotta agree with Motomech here, because I'm in the same boat; I'd LOVE to ride an ebike and was planning on making one for my work commute, but a lack of free time between work and school means not only can I not make one, if it breaks I have no time to fix it! I think you need to look for a moped...

Yeah, that lap job is REAL poor Beastie. Not to sound like a jerk, but for this to work you should have a near-mirror finish with no visible marks- you've got real deep cuts in the copper now thanks to the garnet in the sandpaper. Not only should you have started with 800 grit, but you'll need to wo...

FYI the deal changed and is now just two front hub motor wheels for $78 + shipping.
Darn, I was gonna snag those IGHs once I got off work.

I'd have to check my notes for where I read the 3-speed IGH can withstand the Cyclone, but I still have the texts to a friend of mine about it.

I hadn’t thought about the shifter. Thanks.
I did order a set, shipping to me in South Dakota was $37.

Re: Deal on motors/wheels

Hm, the motors might be neat for a basic twin-motor bike, but the more important thing (to me) is that the Strumey-archer IGH there is claimed to withstand the 3000w cyclone motor's torque.

You mean like the Ethanol we are wasting our time on?
